Thread: Continued pain

  1. #1

    Default Continued pain

    My daughter, Mae, was born on Feb 12, birth weight 6 pounds 4 ounces. No complications at birth and began breastfeeding within the hour.

    I am having continued nipple soreness... pinching, sand papery feeling most of the time when she is nursing. I have been to the lactation specialist three times. Mae has had her tongue clipped, I have had APNO and currently on mucipiron (sp?) rx. There does not appear to be trauma after she comes off. lactation specialist said the latch looks good and is not sure what more to offer me. she told me about an early devellopmental evaluation to possibly train Mae to suck/latch on differently (which didn't make sense to me since she is a lactation specialist??) I was also diagnosed with vasospasms...but that is pretty much under control and this pain is different.

    Mae was 12 pounds 6 ounces two weeks ago...she is a pretty happy baby who loves to nurse... i am just in pain!

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    Is the RX for thrush? Because sand paper feeling makes me think thrush. Especially if you don't have any blanching, misshapen nipple or bite marks. I feel that when my son switches from eating to comfort sucking.

    Wow, mama, you're a trooper! Is there another lactation consultant (preferably IBCLC) near you who might have additional insight? I don't have a similar experience to offer, just encouragement, and congratulations on your baby and on sticking with breastfeeding through what sounds like bad pain!
